Welcome to the home page of TAMOC (the Theoretical Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics Community).

TAMOC also maintains a page in LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/8179030

TAMOC is a forum for communication among AMO theorists and with the AMO community at large within and beyond the American Physical Society’s Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics (DAMOP).

Current co-Chairs (2016-2018) are Robert Forrey (Penn State, rcf6@psu.edu) and N. Balakrishnan (UNLV, naduvala@unlv.nevada.edu). Immediate past co-Chairs are Andrei Derevianko (U. Nevada, andrei@unr.edu ) and Michael Crescimanno (Youngstown State U., mcrescim@cc.ysu.edu). Terms begin at the close of the meeting when elected (first consecutive meeting) and end at the close of the third consecutive meeting (adopted at TAMOC 2010, Houston, the co-chairs+past-chairs administrative structure adopted at DAMOP TAMOC meeting 2012).


June 23, 2017: Message from Victor Flambaum: Research Associate in Theoretical Physics

June 10, 2017: The 2017 annual TAMOC business meeting was held during the 48th Annual DAMOP Meeting June 5-9, 2017, Sacramento, CA (USA).

May 5, 2017: Message from Uwe Thumm: Research Associate position at Kansas State University

January 13, 2017: Message from TAMOC co-chairs: The deadline for abstract submission (01/27/2017) for the 48th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics is two weeks away.

November 7, 2016:  Message from Barry Schneider:  The NSF XSEDE program provides allocations of supercomputer resources to the open science community on a number of platforms ranging from traditional supercomputers to cloud computing.  Startup allocations may be obtained without submission of a formal proposal and larger allocations are reviewed 4 times a year.  For more details see,  https://portal.xsede.org/allocations-overview

November 1, 2016:  Message from Brian Kendrick:  Open position at Los Alamos National Laboratory

November 1, 2016:   Message from Svante Jonsell:  Assistant Professor in Theoretical Atomic and Molecular Physics, Stockholm University


October 5, 2016:  Message from Anatoli Kheifets: The first Announcement of ICPEAC30 in Australia

September 15, 2016:  The TAMOC community is saddened by the passing of Deborah Jin. To read about her pioneering research or to share your remembrances or thoughts, please go to  https://jila.colorado.edu/news/deborah-jin-dies-47

June 30, 2016:  Message from Barry Schneider:  The Information Technology Laboratory has established two, new NIST funded postdoctoral  positions.  These are in addition to the NRC postdoctoral positions and program that NIST has traditionally participated in.  As with the NRC programs, only US citizens are eligible but as this is limited to our laboratory and under our control, the chances of being selected is far greater.  The program is going to begin this August and continue into the indefinite future.  It will be a biannual call, August and January, in order to coincide with the NRC call.  The salary and benefits will align with the NRC program and are therefore quite good by most standards.  I would like to encourage those of you with really qualified graduate students to have them think about applying to the program.  While there is a variety of research topics going on within the Applied and Computational Mathematics Division, I am particularly interested in applicants with experience in scattering theory, interaction of radiation with matter and quantum chemistry.  All postdocs are encouraged to develop there own ideas and there is considerable freedom in what specific research problems they can pursue.  In addition, it has been traditional that NIST has made many permanent appointments from their postdoctoral pool. 

Please contact Barry Schneider  at bis@nist.gov for more details.

May 5, 2016: The 2016 annual TAMOC business meeting was held during the 47th Annual DAMOP Meeting May 23-27, 2016, Providence, RI (USA).
